Delve into the history and human stories which have shaped Holy Trinity from the 13th century to the present day.

Painted ceilings

Our beautiful painted ceilings, created in the early twentieth century, are one of our key attractions. The ceilings of the nave, chancel, tower and Vesey Chapel each have a distinct style.

Tomb of Bishop Vesey

The tomb of Bishop Vesey, and the chapel in which it lies, honour the man who had a huge impact on Sutton Coldfield and Holy Trinity church.

Woodwork

Over the centuries, Holy Trinity has become a showcase for some exquisite woodwork, including unique pieces from Worcester Cathedral.

Stained glass windows

Holy Trinity has a wide variety of charming stained glass. Mostly nineteenth century and set into much older frames, many act as memorials to past inhabitants of the parish.
